Sending unknown and/or encrypted data and sending personally identifying information to known and unknown third parties is something a spyware would do. So I would call it spying.MattiasNYC wrote: ↑Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:27 pmTelemetry isn't "spying". The usage of that word is just silly. I really wish people would stop using it in this cnotext. "Spying" is something that's done covertly. If this really was "spying" then these MS/Apple are the worst spies ever, telling users what they're doing.
Real-time kernel, memory management, use a desktop environment (DE) that has a low resource usage, specific audio performance tweaks...MattiasNYC wrote: ↑Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:27 pmI have no idea how this relates to DAW work. Or other work for that matter. Are there examples?
And what Apple/M$ are trying to do is to lock you down into their ecosystem so you cannot get apps/software from other sources besides their own store.

The thing is: it doesn't. Everybody knows Linux (with a full feature DE) can be a lot faster/lower on resource usage than OS X and Windows.
And I want to be able to control my OS. If I want to uninstall something, I want to be able to do that (freedom!).
I don't think Windows 10 is really that much better than Windows 7.MattiasNYC wrote: ↑Mon Jul 31, 2017 6:27 pmReally the same objection as the previous one: Does Windows run as stable as I would like it to? I have read pretty much only good reviews regarding the stability of the OS by testers and system builders who us Win 10 + Cubase/Nuendo (7 or below). So I just don't see how this is an issue.
If I was a data center builder, or did backbone stuff for banks or something, then maybe I'd care about this. But that isn't the case, so....

And Linux development moves a hell lot faster than OSX/Win10.
But don't get me wrong, I don't think Windows or OS X are crap. I think they are a lot better for audio than Linux right now.
Linux audio stack is still a mess ~> http://tuxradar.com/content/how-it-work ... -explained
But because development is extremely fast on the open-source world and Linux is free (as in freedom), I think it could be A LOT better than OSX/Win10 in the future.
People are always telling me that "the market isn't there yet" but I think maybe it is. And it's just waiting for the iniciative from the big ones to flourish.
I don't trust M$ and Apple with my OS because they don't care for their customers, they just care about controlling and making profit.
